The July awareness campaign is The Summer Learning Slide. Have you heard of the “summer slide?” The summer slide is a decline in reading ability and other academic skills that can occur over the summer months when school isn’t in session. Numerous studies show that kids who don’t read during summer vacation, actually slip in reading ability by the time school rolls around. Beat the Summer Slide with Helpful Resources that we can send to you via email, and by encouraging your child to devote a small bit of time each day to keep up their skills. We can share with you this information via email, or you can go to our website https://www.elcpalmbeach.org/awareness-topics.
